All along the aquaculture value chain, Diana Aqua commits to yield the best benefits from natural marine resources.

Thus, because we do not compromise with our social and environmental responsibilities, we operate to deliver the most sustainable and performing solutions to our customers.


Our business model, sustainable by nature

Our natural raw material is collected from our suppliers of the fish & shrimp food industry.
We valorize the co-product while managing high quality standards.

Around 60% of fish and shrimp co-products (viscera, heads, bones) are generated from the human food industry.
We collect these co-products and transform them into highly performing solutions.

Footprint
•    Our raw material is locally sourced
Quality standards & food safety
•    We guarantee high quality and freshness
•    Our raw material complies to strict specifications

Over the years, we have developed a worldwide recognized expertise in hydrolysis process technologies to yield the best benefits from marine raw material.
But our commitments towards sustainability also focus on our industrial activity to minimize our environmental footprint and maximize our positive social impact.

Yielding the best value from nature
•    We transform our marine raw material into highly functional hydrolysate with a perfect control of hydrolysis process parameters
•    We are able to adjust the hydrolysis for targeted species and specific benefits

Quality standards & food safety
•    All of our products are food safety guaranteed through certifications
•    Their standardization is validated through accurate control plans

Footprint
•    We closely monitor our main environmental impacts
•    We have set for ourselves ambitious objectives of reduction for waste, water quality, GHG emission and energy consumption

Care for people

•    We animate social program for our employees and local communities

Sustainable marine ingredients, consistent and standardized products, stable supply and prices are key elements for our customers.

Reducing pressure on marine resources
The use of our functional hydrolysates enables to reduce fish meal in aqua feeds, contributing to the development of more sustainable feeds. It also allows using new sustainable proteins sources.

The inclusion of our functional hydrolysates in aqua feeds helps improve feed utilization and enhance fish resistance to environmental challenges, contributing to the sustainable development of aquaculture.
 
Farming improvement
•    Optimizing feed utilization (FCR) and growth rate (SGR)
•    Reducing fish mortality

Environment preservation
•    Waste reduction thanks to higher product digestibility
•    Reduction of medicines thanks to better fish and shrimp health
